The Green Dragon on Church Street, Wymondham, is well known for its decadent Christmas decorations created by manager and former-florist Moya Topsom.

Ms Topsom, who used to own Jasmine Florist in Wymondham, said she took her inspiration from the 14th centaury architecture of the pub.

The decorations are created from a combination of greenery and berries grown in the pub garden, charity shop finds and bits and pieces grown and traded by customers.

Land lord Justin Harvey said everything in the pub is locally sourced and environmentally friendly.

He said: “We trade ivy from our garden for holly berries from a neighbours bush and we make sure it looks different every year.

“The customers love it and look forward to seeing what Moya creates.”
